In addition to a new storyline that introduces unseen locations and monsters, it also introduces mechanics for a rival party of NPCs. It’s not really something we’ve seen from the best Dungeons & Dragons books before, so the adventures should offer something to captivate you, even if you’ve never seen Critical Roll.

Taking place in the world of Xandria (the setting for Critical Role seasons one and two), the book will take adventurers to an immersed realm, described as a cross between the Lovecraftian faraway realm and the depths of the ocean. . However, this is not a monster hunt; This is a rescue mission. To be precise, Vital Role: Call of the Nether challenges players to save “a mighty champion of the gods”, whose name and actions have long been forgotten.


“Bringing a straightforward adventure book to life within Xandria is really such an exciting thing, especially exploring ideas and elements I haven’t been able to bring to an expedition myself yet. With such a talented team It’s an absolute honor to be working on and producing a story,” Matthew Mercer says in the press release.

He further added that it will be a dark campaign; To be precise, Mercer “can’t wait for people to step into the unique mysteries and dark challenges that Call of the Netherland invites.”

Composed of seven chapters, Critical Role: Call of the Netherdeep begins in the rubble of Zorhas before introducing a new continent – Marquette.

Speaking of lore, D&D game design architect Chris Perkins says Call of the Netherdeep feels right to the spirit of the critical role while still being enjoyable for non-fans. “There’s depth to the story, and there’s a wealth of setting information for all the critters in this book.”

Call of the Netherlands is the latest in a line of new D&D releases over the next few months; Fizzban’s Treasury of Dragons is launching in late October 2021, while Streakhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos is due to land a few months later.
